Haven't we heard all of our lives, people like Pres. Obama, telling others that their failures are not their own faults? Perhaps he feels he received unearned success. Part of him must be in awe that his schtick has worked and he is where he is and part of him must believe that his failures were never his fault.

"If you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. ... If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

-- Barack Obama

The president's defenders have claimed he either misspoke last week at a Roanoke, Va., campaign event or that what he said is true. Both defenses have merit....
